Arabic: tamar ripe dates
If we only knew the health benefits of dates we would eat them instead of biscuits and bread and jam and cakes.
TAKE CARE WHERE YOU BUY YOUR DATES FROM, we usually buy Algerian ,Morrocand and Madinah dates
It is significant that dates are mentioned over 22 times in the Quran, more than any other fruit, more than any vegetable or animal product. This emphasis signifies their importance in nutrition and remedial benefits. The date palm is the national symbol of Saudi Arabia and for good reason; they have been in the land for over 10, 000 years and were a main stay of the economy, prior to oil.
SURAT/CHAPTER 16, AYAT/VERSE 11, An-Naĥl (The Bee)
“With it He causes to grow for you the crops, the olives, the date-palms, the grapes, and every kind of fruit. Verily! In this is indeed an evident proof and a manifest sign for people who give thought. “
Dates are a good source of energy, sugar, and fibre. They contain natural fruit sugar not to be confused with the toxic refined white stuff.
